Norwich Saint Martin at Oak Church



Norwich Saint Martin at Oak Church, Cautley wrote: This church was damaged by bombs and I couldn't get into it, (know how it feels with many churches in Norfolk) It is said to have an old hour glass stand. Messent was a bit more fortunate, he writes: East side of Oak Street, square west tower, 3 bells, nave with south aisle, chancel, and south porch with doorway built up to form a vestry. This church is entirely in Perpendicular style. The south aisle was added by Alderman Wilkin, who died in 1491. There are a number of interesting effies in alabaster of Jeremiah Revans and his wife. She died in 1711, and he in 1727. there is also another to Robert Bene, circa 1725 by sculptor Robert Page. The old oak tree in the churchyard is said to be the fifth planted in the same spot. The original one  had an image of the Blessed Virgin Mary, called "Our Lady of the Oak.
